:bow:

I've actually listened to some of Rinpoche's recorded teachings before. Excellent teacher! Not sure what this title really means, but I am very happy for Rinpoche and Nyingmapas everywhere :)

Ha! So, that's why so many Rinpoches declined the title :lol:

I've had the great fortune to receive some transmissions from Rinpoche on a couple occasions at Tashi Choling here in S Oregon, and he's always struck me as incredible. I wonder what the likelihood is that we'll see him back here anytime soon, though.

Yes, Sangye Khandronspoke very highly of him.
